Generally, no. If all your income is from social security, then you usually don't have to file. There are some rare situations (such as if you control a trust or bank account in another country) in which you would have to file, but would not have to pay.

Yes, you have to file your 1040, but you may not have to pay any taxes.

It depends on your age, deductions, and total income.
